There is an ask and a bid - and computerized trading. There is no human factor involved whatsoever - the legendary "market makers"...Manipulation is a poor excuse.Put a buy order at 9.77 and it gets filled, put a sell order at 9.66 and it gets filled, regardless of size.
Seems like the computers are set to roller coaster mode lately.
think about who is placing those bids and asks.......mms, hedge funds, etc
... or people like you and me. They are legitimate bids/asks - I would not call it "manipulation"... It is called the "market", supply and demand.
